NBC reports:

About 100,000 more people moved away from California in 2011 than relocated to the Golden State, according to the latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau.

In recent years, unemployment in the state has skyrocketed, while the cost of living has increased.

So, where are these Californians going? The Census Bureau calculated that the most popular destination is Texas, with 58,992 residents relocating there along with a number of California companies.

Arizona was next on the list, with 49,635 people moving, then Nevada, Washington, and Oregon.

Although in smaller numbers, others are still relocating to the Golden State. Texans make up the largest number of new California residents with 37,387 people, according to the report. That is followed by people from Washington (36,481), Nevada (36,159), Arizona (35,650), and New York (25,269). Facebook Fark Furl
